Praised as “what’s next in Nashville” by NPR, Maggie Rose will release her new EP ‘Dreams > Dollars’ on May 19. Fueled by love and loss and her own personal experiences with the two, Maggie penned and co-produced the five-song EP, showcasing her evolution into “one of country’s rising storytellers” (Washington Post).

In “Body On Fire” (available now via Spotify pre-order), the provocative lead-off single, Maggie’s sultry vocals set free the yearning urgency of requited love. A tender guitar intro builds to the lust-filled crescendo, “you don’t even need to try, you just set my body on fire!” It hits right in the solar plexus and you wait for it to happen again and again. Her explosive range empowers listeners to embrace their bodies and sexuality. Listen via Spotify here: spoti.fi/2p4hbpL

The remaining tracks on ‘Dreams > Dollars’ play as an exuberant, anthemic collection that delivers poignant clarity through her relatable stories of love, success and struggle. The EP’s first track, “Too Many Love Songs,” creates a not-so-picturesque image of the aftermath of a relationship. With references to Bob Dylan and Patsy Cline, the song is an anthem to the brokenhearted and quickly becomes a safe haven from unavoidable love songs. Title track “More Dreams Than Dollars” “exudes both confidence and vulnerability… [weaving the] tale of hope” (Rolling Stone Country) familiar to all struggling dreamers, while “I Won’t” sketches a voyeuristic take on love, pinpointing the dysfunction that arises from passion. The EP caps with “We’ll Grow Out Of It,” where Maggie capitalizes on a universally relatable theme post-2016 — trying to find your place in the world while watching it seemingly fall off the hinges.

“This project was simply the most natural, relevant next step for me. I’m so inspired by what I am most passionate about: the music I made and the people I love,” says Maggie. “I’ve never been more comfortable in my own skin than I am now, and I think this EP showcases that.”

Maggie is off to an amazing start in 2017. In addition to her 13-date run on Martina McBride’s CMT Next Women of Country Tour, she has landed her biggest direct-support dates yet. She’ll be heading out on the road with Hunter Hayes this Spring and will cap her Summer as direct-support on Tim McGraw & Faith Hill’s Soul2Soul tour. Maggie joins CMA Vocal Duo of the Year Brothers Osborne, GRAMMY-winning songwriter Lori McKenna, Margo Price and more as support.
